If life gives you lemons, Part 2

You just go out to eat, and then to the RV Hall of Fame in nearby Elkhart.

Carriage came by a little after 7a this morning and picked up the Cameo. Since we were already up we went to our new favorite place to eat, the Lux Cafe, for breakfast. Jo got the baked apple pancakes which are now her new favorite pancakes, 

One benefit of extra time in the area is seeing places that we had on our list and that included the RV Hall of Fame and Museum. This museum has the oldest known RV, the 1913 Earl Trailer and Model T Ford believed to be the oldest non-tent travel trailer in existence that was custom built for a Cal Tech professor. The rest of the collection deals chronologically with RVs as they progressed through the 1920's to the present. It was amazing to see how the features we take for granted in modern RVs developed over the years.
Also included is an area where a new model of each type of RV (motor home, fifth wheel, travel trailer, etc.) s available for viewing. There also is a major vendor area where the vendors that provide the refrigerators, air conditioners, etc. have displays. Finally the Hall of Fame is on the upper level of the museum.

Regardless of the circumstances we are happy that we got to see the RV Hall of Fame and Museum. There is still some work for Carriage to do so we repeat it all again tomorrow at 7a. We are still hoping to head for IL after Carriage completes their work if it is early enough in the day.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo
